The Suzuki Method was founded over fifty years ago by Shinichi Suzuki, a Japanese violinist and pedagogue.

Parent involvement, loving encouragement, and emphasis on a beautiful tone are just a few elements of what makes the Suzuki method special.
The Music Settlement offers Suzuki instruction for the following instruments:
Designed for children ages 4-6, our Intro to Suzuki course is both a parent education and musical enrichment course. This course will answer any questions you have about becoming a Suzuki parent and serves as a prerequisite for Suzuki instruction at TMS.
